2020 Family Christmas

Holidays Done Bright!

Charlottesville’s only four-diamond resort lights up for the holidays starting with our Grand Illumination. Bring the entire family to experience an array of festive lights and elegantly decorated Christmas trees. Make it a long weekend by checking in on Thursday and enjoy a festive Thanksgiving meal in our newly renovated Mill Room Restaurant. And the fun doesn't stop with Thanksgiving weekend. Throughout the Christmas season, you can join us for a special brunch that allows your family to meet Santa and Mrs. Clause and enjoy a carriage ride through the resort. There's even a toy workshop for the little ones!
